    Quick Question:

    Is the topic AHHHHHH! AUGUST or Ahhhhh (cool refreshing beverage) August?

    It doesn't really matter, I'm just curious.
    :D

    Would anyone be extremly upset if I asked if we could change the date to the last weekend of August? I just found out that I have weddings and bridal showers that I have to plan for both the 16 and the 23. I love it when I'm not informed of anything. :(

    I was thinking more along the lines of the 30 but now that I've said that I realize it's labor day weekend.

    If we can't go shooting, is there something else anyone would like to suggest we do?

    I haven't heard anything from Rick about the 16 either. We can still do it that day if I can get some definate times from people who seem to think they tell me times but never do.

    Now why would we want to go to houston to visit you Merlin? We talk to you on the boards.

    Shooting sounds fun. Who are the targets?

    Okay, I've got an idea if the shooting falls through (which would make me sad :_| ).

    I recieved this email about the planet mars (you know, that really big red one). Maybe some of you have noticed it, maybe not, but the planet has been unusually bright this year, and there is a reason to that: I'm not going to explain it though because my little brain can only comprehend so much.
    Anyway, the planet is going to get brighter and bigger as the month goes on. I was thinking it would be fun to have a night activity where we haul out our telescopes and had a star/mars gazing. We could do a BBQ, play night games, and take in what will never happen in our life time again (or so says the email). The encounter will culminate on August 27th when Mars comes to within
    34,649,589 miles of Earth and will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in the night sky. I was thinking a little closer to the end of the month would be good...

    What does everyone think? Is this just the height of nerdiness..to want to look at a giant ball of gas in the sky?? Who's with me?!?!

    Well,... if it WAS a giant ball of gas, yes. :)

    Mars is a bit more solid...

    but I think that would be fun, myself. But I'm weird like that.

    ok, I talked to Mary and it sounds like we are going to do this. Now we just need to get a date...here's some days that I think would work well, tell me what you think:

    Thurs 14
    Fri 15
    Sat 16
    Thurs 21
    Fri 22
    Sat 23

    Also, anyone know of a place up in the mountains that would be good for this? Park, resevoir, shady parking lot behind a bunch of trees...oh, wait, that one is for something else, nevermind.

    Ok, I'm thinking the 22nd is going to be the best so lets plan for that. I'm thinking that the best time to get together is around 9 pm...the planet should be high enough by then (I've always noticed it around 11pm...but I'm right up against the mountain).
    Also, I was thinking we could play night games, have a mini BBQ, make a party out of it. Does anyone know any good night games?

    Rifles? Hand guns? What would you be shooting with?

    Someone in the group has a firing range I believe. We will not be doing the shooting event this month though. That will be set aside for another month sometime soon. I'd like to talk to him in person about it so we can set up a time that's good for him and everyone else.

    I say we go with the Mars watch.

    Maybe we can do the firing range thing in November and who ever gets the most targets or something gets a turkey. How's that?

    Mars is good. Kick the can is a good night game.
